    Hi, does anyone know where I can buy single fins for R129 grill, the grill is A129 880 0285 model no, the grill has metal fins which run either side of the star, 5 per side, 1 long at top.

    Apart from the main dealer? Most breakers will want to sell the grille as a complete entity.

    The other thing to consider is that the finish on these parts ages, so you may struggle with a match.

    I wonder if that's the right part number then, as the slats should be available individually. Unfortunately I can't get into EPC currently to check the exact p/n
